From Fashion with Tom Ford and Yves Saint Laurent To A Social Business Supporting 100 Women in Turkey

👋Have you already been in a situation where you can not stay without doing anything?🤷 15 years ago, Izabela Szeliga started a promising 🚀career at Yves Saint Laurent👚, dealing with world famous🌠 fashion designers such as Tom Ford and Yves Saint Laurent himself. However, after falling in love♥️ with a Turkish🇹🇷, she decided to quit everything and start a new life 👍in Istanbul.

After getting married👰, she got an alarming🚨 pregnancy. Without knowing if the baby would survive😟, she had to lie down🛌 as much as possible. To pass the time, she reconnected with an old passion: crafting cuddly toys🧸. The baby👶 finally came out in perfect health ⚕️and Izabela decided to create a small business with the launch of a direct to consumer toy brand.

To hire her first employees👩‍💼, she posted a short advertising📢 targeting mothers🤱 looking for work from home. The result was stunning🌠🌠… She received more than 3000 applications by email 📧and over the phone☎️. Izabela discovered that thousands of women were desperately🙏 looking for complementary revenues💰 to make ends meet. Izabela’s mission🚀 shifted from a profit based business to a social one providing sustainable jobs with fair pay to stay home 🏘️mothers.

That is how BebeMoss was born as a responsible toy brand✔️. Every toy provides a fair trade income to a woman in need. Today, Izabela hired more than 100 mothers🌠 in Istanbul Turkey🇹🇷 including 28 refugees from Syria 🇸🇾who are working hard to provide necessities for their families👏 while they rebuild their lives in a new country.

🌠🌠🌠At our own pace and scale, everyone can aspire to change the world!🌠🌠🌠
